Sometimes a waitress can be so genuinely friendly and attentive that her mere presence feels like a warm hug. If you have sat in Lori McMahon's section at Tequila Sunrise, then you can probably attest to that level of waiterly affection. If you're a regular, you've probably been on the receiving end of numerous actual hugs and countless "rock-on" hand gestures and shouted "love yas" as well as consistently topnotch service. It's impossible not to notice McMahon when dining at the locally loved Mexican restaurant, whether you've drawn the McMahon card or are being attended to by one of the other fine servers. McMahon enlivens the whole atmosphere with her high energy, New York accent, and rocker-in-disguise quirkiness. Among her many adoring fans is owner Schiller Martin. "She's the perfect employee," he said, "heart of gold... she gets along with everyone." Fittingly, it was an act of caring that brought her to South Florida. After working in the fashion industry in Manhattan for ten years, she came down to take care of a honeymooning friend's dog, cat, iguana, and bird. Now she takes care of other, perhaps stranger, creatures most nights of the week.

Lori Is without question the best server I have ever had. She is a people person beyond belief and believes in the best of all people. She will make your day and make your meal the best it can be. Without question, it is worth your while to visit just for her.

Lori is an atomic blast of loving energy. We are and have been regulars at Tequila Sunrise for many years. It is a terrific restaurant filled with a friendly staff, warm atmosphere and delicious food. Lori presence only amplifies these qualities.

I love seeing Lori, if you having a bad day, that will soon change. During football season I watch the dolphins with my 2 boys and she is a jet fan and makes my boys laugh with her banter

Love the restaurant and love Laurie. We go there once a month and have for about 6 years now. She zaps you right out of whatever tentative zone your in and from then on, the food is great, her service is attentive and funky warm. Always a good time at Tequila's.
